“Awesome Bed and Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

My girlfriend and I spent three days, two nights at the Carriage House Inn in room 6, which is the last room in the three room carriage house. Jim met us at the door as we pulled in, and he and Val went above and beyond to make our stay, and everyone else's stay a memorable one. From voluntarily taking the time to go over a map of the area and filling us in on different sights, shops, and restaurants to see around town- to the fresh baked cookies every afternoon in the main house, we knew this was unlike anywhere we'd stayed before. The room was very clean, beautifully decorated, complete with an electric fireplace and sliding glass side doors that opened into the side of the yard that still allowed for lots of privacy. The breakfasts went above and beyond anything that I could have dreamed. My favorite was the eggs florentine our first morning there. Jim and Val are awesome hosts of a charming bed and breakfast. The question isn't IF we'll be back, but when!

Room Tip: We thought our room in the old carriage house was really nice, and it was also quiet. If you don'...

My husband & I recently stayed @ the Carriage House Inn . We were made to feel so welcome by our hosts, Val and Jim, from the moment we arrived. They made sure that we had everything we needed to make our stay memorable. Jim was very helpful in giving us advice and tips about how to make the most of each day and helped us navigate where we were going. The Carriage house is very conveniently located and the room was good sized, very clean and very quiet. Val's breakfasts were out of this world , especially her delicious scones. Snacks were also available throughout the day. Everything was better than expected and we would highly recommend this place to anyone traveling to the charming Town of Chatham. Ed & Wanda

We spent three nights at the Carriage House Inn as part of a five week trip and enjoyed every minute. Val and Jim are warm and attentive hosts who made us feel very welcome. We enjoyed the communal breakfast dining, with the chance to chat with other guests, and the delicious breakfasts and presentation. Our room was attractively decorated, spotless and the bed was the most comfortable we experienced in five weeks. Jim is brimming with knowledge and ideas of the local area, happily imparting advice to ensure we made the most of our brief time on Cape Cod. We left with smiles on our faces and happy memories of our lovely hosts. We thoroughly recommend the Carriage House Inn.

"We left with smiles on our faces and happy memories of our lovely hosts" - WOW! But when you left we had frowns. There are times in this business when we are saddened to see guests go. That was the case with you. Thanks for taking the time to write this wonderful review.

We are experienced "bed & breakfast"ers and love the experience of interacting with our hosts. Jim and Val are at the same time attentive to needs and respectful of privacy. We LOVED the breakfasts every morning and the time to get to know the other guests. Jim was the ultimate answer man when it came to sightseeing in the area. Our room (# 5) was romantic and private. We loved having the gas fireplace to warm up with every night. You will not be disappointed if you stay here!

What a fun couple you were here. We're thrilled you enjoyed your visit to Chatham. And yes, we agree that Sarasota has one of the top beaches in the country (#1) - but our Coast Guard Beach is right up there (rated #9 in the US). If we get to Florida, don't be surprised if we call for a reunion. The welcome mat will always be out for you here in Chatham.

We stayed here for 4 nights at the beginning of our holiday and could not have wished for a more perfect start to our trip. Our two rooms were very comfortable and great for watching a couple of DVDs whilst getting over our jet lag. Val and Jim were perfect hosts and made us, and our 2 children, feel very welcome. Breakfasts were delicious and it was lovely to return to tea and cookies at the end of a day's sightseeing.

Would wholeheartedly recommend.

We had such an amazing time at the Carriage House Inn. Our gracious and generous hosts Val and Jim went out of their way to make everything perfect on our visit. We stayed in Room three which had the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in. The room was decorated beautifully, meticulous, and we were thrilled with our choice. The breakfasts were to die for. Delicious fresh fruit, yummy baked goods and gourmet entrees. The afternoon cookies were fabulous! Jim gave expert advice about the area. They went above and beyond to help us plan our events. We visited during Cape Cod Restaurant week, and they gave us excellent restaurant recommendations. What a beautiful inn, and in a perfect location. I look forward to returning to the Carriage House Inn, and Cape Cod in general.

Room Tip: Room three had the most comfortable king size bed we've ever slept in.

Thanks for your lovely review. Nothing gives us greater pleasure than pleasing our guests. Your timing was perfect - great weather and restaurant week to boot! Nothing beats a price fix at the area's greatest restaurants. We really hope to see you again.

My wife and I were given a night at the Carriage House Inn in Chatham MA as a gift. Great gift.

The Inn is conveniently located near the center of Chatham, one of Cape Cod's best destinations. The Inn is charming, and the Inn Keepers Jim and Val are warm and competent. Rooms are comfortable, well furnished, with wonderful beds, cable, baths, and individually controlled heat. Val's breakfast was superb - stuffed French toast, delicious coconut bread, sausage, juice, and good coffee served in a bright morning room. The common areas are large and well furnished, and there are attractive lawns and gardens. An overall first rate experience!

Room Tip: We stayed in only one room but saw evidence that all rooms were similarly excellent.
